I visited with two friends one busy lunch time. One of us didn't want to eat and just had a coffee, which was no problem for the staff - no minimum lunchtime charge here. I had spinach and butternut squash quiche and salad, which was delicious, and my other friend had carrot soup. She didn't want the bread with it,... More

Having recently become vegetarian I have been looking for interesting vegetarian restaurants. This cafe had a fantastic selection of healthy vegetarian meals. It was beautifully presented and tasted great.

I've visited Star Anise quite a few times in the last couple of years ans appreciate its ethos on things; its a unique, lovely and inspiring place, somehow full of spirit unlike the vast majority of cafes out there, though the staff are cool and not very friendly. Though I sense it is indeed a soulful, colourful, musical, fun and... More

Love this place, interesting great food, totally chilled atmosphere full of local people and very family orientated. I hesitated posting this as it almost is a best kept secret place that is not overtly commercial ..... run by people with passion and values. A Free Trade, Organic, locally sourced and vegetarian focussed cuisine.

I eat here often when I visit Stroud UK, It has all the healthy tasty, fresh, exciting delights in eating. I love their gluten-free breads and pastries, their veggie blended soups, their utimately wonderful green salads with lemon, vinegar, spice dressings, their soft cheeses, their chips (french fries US) and the atmosphere. There are lots of announcements, flyers, ad pages... More

I visited a couple of times one week whilst in town of an evening and I have to say both times I had the best flat white I've tasted in a while, probably the best coffee in the county!

As a confirmed meat eater a lot of the menu was unknown to me- but my friend ordered for us and I wasn't disappointed. Food was very tasty, good portions and presented well. It is a 'Stroud' cafe- which means alternative- clients n food. Staff very pleasant. Well worth a visit.
